Diarrhoea or Diarrhea

  • So, diarrhoea, eh?

I’m still so impressed that I’m spelling this without looking it up. Although, i can’t be sure that this will always be the case. It’s one of those words that leaves me wondering how many r’s and where and is there definitely an ‘o’?

(Yes, my American friends, there is an ‘o’ in there in my neck of the woods!).

I’m even more impressed with the fact that it is not merely an intestinal problem born of a bad curry. But, rather, a state of mind that inflicts Scots that live 5 miles from Glasgow, that work during the week and empty the bowel that is their mind at the weekend.

Clean up on Aisle 5, please.
